Georg, Heiko (2011) Skid resistance and durability of coated and uncoated concrete floors in dairy cattle buildings. In: 7th International Symposium on Cement Based Materials for a Sustainable Agriculture, pp. 1-6.
Passageways in cattle buildings should provide durable and non-slippery surface to allow cattle an unrestrained locomotion and expression of behaviour. In order to evaluate walking areas fo cattle buildings and their grip or skid resistance, measures with Skid Resistance Tester to obtain SRT-values were performed on sevreal dairy farms in Germany.
